Thank you for your interest in supporting the Milan Public Library! There are a number of ways in which you can support the library through financial donations, which are described below.
The Library benefits from the income from four Endowment Funds. As with any endowed fund, the available monies are only those generated by the income on the fund's principle investment each year, which can vary considerably.
Do you have a special interest that you'd like to support? Designated donations may be made to support specific areas, such as programming for children and/or adults, specific collections (music, large print, nonfiction, video, etc.).
Thank you for considering donating materials to the Milan Public Library! We are happy to give you a receipt for tax purposes.
We appreciate your keeping in mind that we are a small library with limited space and staff to handle donations! :)
All items must be in good (saleable) condition. Please only donate items in a condition that you yourself would purchase.
Donations are accepted on the first two Saturdays of each month (unless we are closed for a holiday). Saturday hours are 10 am-4 pm. We can accept a maximum of 2-3 boxes from each donor on any given Saturday. Library staff are not available to pick up donations from elsewhere.
We are currently accepting (in good condition):
We cannot accept:
Donated items may be: 1) added to the library’s collections, 2) placed for sale in the Friends of the Library sale or 3) donated elsewhere.

The Library subscribes to a variety of magazines for all ages. You can help the library stretch its budget by 'adopting' a magazine for a year for $28 (average subscription cost). Magazines may be sponsored in honor or memory of an individual. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call at 734-439-1240.
For more information on any of these funds/donation options, please contact Susan Wess, Library Director, at email@example.com or 734-439-1240. Thank you!
